Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) has launched the ESSA Individual Induction, the first in a series of certificated training courses for its members, with a focus on health and safety.
In its continued provision of market-leading services to its members, ESSA has created a series of bite-sized induction courses that cover a range of safety-related areas to provide a key understanding of different health and safety requirements when working at an exhibition or event.
Free and unlimited access to full ESSA members, 12 new induction courses are available in the first series and include: Health and Safety Law, The CDM Regulations 2015, Industry Resources, Risk Assessment, Work at Height, Work Equipment, Fire Safety, Electrical Safety, Vehicle Safety, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, Slips and Trips, and Environmental Awareness.
ESSA Director, Andrew Harrison, said: “At this critical time, we need to support our industry with the necessary training that demonstrates commitment to every aspect of health and safety. We have listened intently to our members and recognise that for many, there is a requirement to work from the ground up to meet the increasing health and safety needs of our sector and exhibit demonstrable training and competency at all levels.
“A key focus area and pillar of our leadership, this training enables members to put the steppingstones in place towards ultimately achieving accredited status by providing the tools and knowledge required to implement best-in-practice health and safety measures as standard.”
